Seller: maureenfs (14,466) 100%, Location: Sugar Grove, Illinois, Ships to: US, Item: 401822790918 Primitive Antique Early 1900s Dream Book Bridal Superstitions Dr. V.M. Pierce Click images to enlarge Description PLEASE CLICK ON “READ MORE” AND READ FULL DESCRIPTION AND SEE MORE PHOTOS! I went to TEN barn sales recently, really, all on the same day in the wonderful prairie around me. SOOOO much work to do now – I found a LOT for you, you don’t want to miss this week! Also, be sure to scroll all the way down to the bottom of all of my listings as I usually have MORE photos down there, too! AND…I might as well say it from the get-go. ALL of my items this week are DIRTY, DUSTY, COBWEBBY AND DEBRISY, all barn lived for a long time, and ALL will need a good cleaning. I do not clean or mess with as found patina in any way. Also please note that I’ve made some changes to my payment and combined shipment policies, which you can see highlighted in my detail below. This one really is a hoot! I'm calling it primitive because it is - it's shabby worn from use, with paper that is very very thin, but it still reads very well! As you can see from my photos, it's darkened with age and has small rips, old creases and nibbles all around the paper, with the top and bottom corners nibbled round as you can see in photos 13 and 16, but amazingly, the stapled "binding" is still intact and it has all of its 32 pages intact - there are none missing. That being said, I handled it very very carefully as it is so fragile. It's titled "Dream Book Bridal Superstitions," on the front, and open it up and the first page tells you what you will find inside of the book, "DREAMS - In most countries and in all ages, dreams have been believed in by some people as indications of the future..." It then goes on to tell you what certain things in dreams "mean," like, Accident - "To dream that an accident occurs to you means great success," or Angel - "To dream you see an angel foretells the death of a beloved friend," or Animals - "To dream of domestic animals means a happy return of absent friends." That's just the START! One of my favorite parts is actually the inside of the cover, where you have a photo of the brain of the book, Dr. V.M. Pierce, who is identified as the President of the Invalids Hotel in Buffalo NY. It reads, "I invite you to consult the medical staff of the Invalids Hotel if you desire free medical advice...." It goes on, I'll let you read the rest. It measures 5 1/2" by 4" and is about 1/8" thick. It weighs only a couple of ounces. I do not like sending Media Mail, but have started doing so with the cost of shipping going so crazy high. Please know it will take a little longer to get to you, because of this. The paper has darkened from age, and some of the colors I'm sure have faded - there's only two colors in the book, black and pink/red. There's some dark caramel colored spots in places like on the upper left of the front cover - like I said, it really is shabby, but this one has lasted 100+ years to be appreciated! Will it be you?!? Customer Satisfaction is extremely important to me. If you receive an item and are not satisfied in any way, please contact me before leaving feedback. If you are using a phone or tablet to look at listings, you may not be seeing full descriptions – please make sure you are – I list sizes, condition and many photos on all of my items – so if you are not seeing that, you’re not seeing all I have about the listing. Please ask if you have any questions, or feel free to inform me if you have any information about one of my listings. As with any of my items, if you ever need extra photos, let me know. My white stool, my rug and anything else that you see other than the item discussed are not included in the auction! PAYMENT IS DUE IMMEDIATELY(SAME DAY) AFTER THE CLOSE OF AN AUCTION. I’m happy to combine shipments for you, when possible - depending upon size and weight, it might not always be possible, though. If you win an item and plan to bid on another, please email me to let me know that you are looking at other items, hold to pay for the first item and request a combined shipping invoice once you’ve won the other item/s. If you pay for an item, I have to ship it, I cannot hold for items that close another day, if you pay for the first item. Unless you ask me for an invoice earlier, I will invoice on Sunday for multiple items purchased the week prior, or after 5 days have passed since the item that you won has closed. 5 (FIVE) days from the closing of the FIRST bought item will be the longest I can wait time wise to combine, and I ask for immediate payment after invoice for combined orders. I NOW HAVE EBAY'S UNPAID ITEM ASSISTANT SET TO AUTOMATICALLY FILE A CLAIM FOR PAYMENT 8 DAYS AFTER THE CLOSE OF AN AUCTION, WHEN NO PAYMENT HAS BEEN MADE - PLEASE KNOW. Please know that some items cannot be combined, though, do to size, weight, or safety of the items. Many items that are set to ship in USPS FLAT RATE boxes; I cannot combine due to size restrictions. Please look at the shipping alternatives in the listings. I only mail USPS and pack in the best manner that we feel safe – I cannot change shipment methods after the close of an auction (i.e. rolling an old map to save money when I have it set to ship flat), especially if I feel the requested method is not safe. Again, I only ship USPS and charge actual cost to ship only. I ship within one business day of receipt of your payment, unless there’s a holiday that closes the post office, or I will notify you otherwise. As I shop for treasures on the weekends, I most often do not ship on Saturday. Most items closing and paid for on Friday will be shipped on Monday. Many of my items come from local rural estate sales and auctions. They are coming right from the barn or attic to you - dust, dirt, cobwebs and all! I do not clean and polish before I sell – they are in the condition found, as you see in my photos, and I leave the patina exactly as it was when I bought the item. I do my best to photo and describe all thoroughly. Please email me before bidding if you do not use PayPal, as Paypal is the only requested method of payment on this listing. With postage rates increasing regularly, I am shipping more and more items Parcel Select. Parcel Select travels by land or rail and the packages do not leave the regional post office until they fill up a bin going in the same direction (so the estimated delivery is truly only an estimate – not exact). The post office estimates 5-7 days, but it can go up higher, sometimes even 3-4 weeks in peak mailing times like the holidays. I always provide a tracking number, so you can see where your item is on any day. Sales tax will be added for states as required. …and thanks so much for looking, I appreciate having you as a customer!
